I've been programming since I was 15. I started with APL at the Hampshire College Summer Studies in Mathematics in 1974. At Carnegie-Mellon I learned FORTRAN, and ALGOL/W, and Pascal, did a lot of TOPS-20 assembly programming hacking the MM mail reader, a fair bit of TECO programming customizing the first versions of Emacs, and a bit of INTERLISP and SAIL. After graduating, I have worked in BLISS-36, a tiny bit of Cobol, a decade of C, lots of Perl and EMACS-LISP, C++, Ada, Tcl, C#, Java, Python, Ruby, JavaScript, and lately some Groovy.
